    I know we have a long way until Emmy nominations, but which of last years winners has the best chance of being left out on Emmy morning?

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    I think King has the best chance of being snubbed even though I’m not predicting it from happening. Nobody is really talking about American Crime like they were last year, and she isnt the most buzzed about performance like last year too. But that category is very weak this year.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    I absolutely LOVE this topic.
    Knowing Emmy voters, all posters will probably say ”None of them” and they would probably be right, but I have some belief in them. That switch to the online voting encouraged lots of younger voters and 2015 had the best set of nominees in recent memory. And remember, in a world where Maggie Smith was snubbed for Joanne Froggatt, no one is %100 safe.

    So I’m hoping: ALL OF THEM.
    Predicting: Only Allison Janney. But there are few others who are in the danger zone.

    Everyone thinks Dinklage will continue to be the show’s token acting nominee until it ends, but I’m not so sure. His speech last year was awful and somehow ungrateful imo. He gave no reason to voters to check his name again when they see it on the ballot. (If writers don’t give him some baity material in s6 like he got in S4, of course. And that’s doubtful because all the fun characters that he used to play with are far, far away now.) The man just doesn’t like the spotlights and media attention and don’t do much interviews&talk shows. Not to mention he will lose more than few votes to his very dead co-star Jon Snow who will compete in the very same category and will take all the attention to himself when the show starts. Tyrion’s not the coolest male character on the show anymore.

    And then there’s Uzo Aduba. People are getting tired of her, too. That second SAG win did her more harm than good. All of her speeches are identical and she thanks the exact same persons. https://youtu.be/7QWHNDtASCo?t=139
    But this one is a little more difficult than the Dinklage one because she is still on the honeymoon period & more charming & there’s no other obvious contender from her show that could be her alternative and someone from OITNB has to be nominated in that category. Mulgrew plays a just as popular character as hers if not more and unlike Crazy Eyes, Red is an important character for the show and her storylines actually keep the plot going.

    Viola Davis? She’s safer than the ones I’ve mentioned above but then again, Emmys don’t have an automatic hard-on for movie stars like SAG do. Remember Steve Buscemi’s snub for Boardwalk Empire’s third season after his two consecutive SAG wins? And he was in a much higher-profile show with plenty of industry support.

    King shouldn’t really count. It’s a new character, new story and completely new competition. 

    I would love for Aduba’s mere cameos to finally get dropped and for Dinklage to stop being GoT’s go-to acting nominee unless he receives a more substantial story and screen time. Unfortunately, I don’t see either happening.

    King

    I’d be awfully surprised if any of the others get the boot.

    I think we could see Allison Janney snubbed. Mom has not taken off at any award show and she is the only nomination each year. She lost the Critics Choice award this year and I think it is well known how many Emmys she has now. She hasn’t been able to manage the SAG award nomination yet. And with 8 nominees last year all of whom could be back this year too….

    Alisson Janney actually is in a lot of danger of getting snubbed. 

    Firstly, she’s has never got a SAG nomination for this role, despite being Aliison Janney. She wasn’t nomited by the globes either and she lost the critics choice to Mayim Bialik of all people.

    Secondly, Mom has never got any traction whatsoever. None of the guilds have ever picked it up and she has been the sole nomination at the emmy’s for that show two years in a row.

    Third, her winning 7 freaking emmys is common knowledge and I won’t be surprised if she gets left off a lot of ballots because she’s been rewarded enough.She’ll fit perfectly in the ‘Eric Stonestreet’, ‘Jon Cryer’ and ‘Julianna Marguilies’ group of ‘2 wins is enough for this role, no more nods’  

    Finally, there were eight nominees last year. And whose to say Janney wasn’t 7 or 8th? Or even 5th or 6th? Meaning its more difficult for her to get the nod this year.

    Julia Louis Dreyfus is a possibility as well. After all, she’s the most often mentioned actor in relation to I’m tired of (name) winning. And the performance is pretty much the same. Not much change there. With the Emmys, precursors mean very little and I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s snubbed. She lost the Globe and SAG again. A fifth win would be too much and I doubt it’ll happen.

    I still think he’ll get in, but I think Tony Hale may miss out. He missed out on a nomination for the first season of Veep, and after two wins in this category out of three nominations, his winning is getting a tad boring. There are a lot of Supporting players in Veep, with Hugh Laurie, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh, and Reid Scott all being pushed into Supporting Actor, he could either split votes, or not get as much screen time next season. Plus, there is a lot of competition in this category, from the vastly improved Jay Duplass in Transparent, to the unfairly overlooked T.J. Miller in Silicon Valley. As I said, he’ll most likely get in, but it is certainly possible he misses.

    JLD isnt winning a fifth, but the show swept last year including Best Comedy. This season is gonna have to get a like Homeland Season 3 reception to get snubbed from series, and even then she will probably still get in

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Tony Hale.

    LOL @ all you people who think Regina King isn’t getting in this year. If anything, she could get 2 nominations (Supporting Actress, Drama Series for The Leftovers + Supporting Actress, Limited Series for American Crime)

    Both of the above performances are being talked about. American Crime is 10x more critically acclaimed now than it was during its 1st season. I’m predicting at least 1 nomination for Ms. King. Would be a true AMERICAN CRIME (hehe) if she was snubbed.

    the reason I say Tony Hale is that I think Veep will be on the downswing after its (surprising) Emmy win. The showrunner has departed. Tony Hale was MUCH better in Veep’s 2nd and 3rd seasons. V surprised he was even nominated last year.

    ^Veep winning wasnt that suprising. It was first place in the prediction center if I remember correctly, or at least right behind Transparent

    Have you guys seen Lily Tomlin’s reaction to JLD’s win last year? She is the governor of acting branch and they’re even pals. 4 consecutive win for the same show is far too much for any person, even if they’re the face of a reigning best comedy winner.
    But 3 previous nominee from last year being ineligible in that category, there isn’t simply anyone who could replace her. Though, I agree that winning 5th will be hard for her.

    And you have to go back to… I don’t know when, to find a show that have lost acting nominations after its first ever Series win. Since acting branch usually the laziest of them all, shows usually gain extra nominations even if the following season sucks in quality. So expect them to name-check their past favourite Hugh Laurie when they see “Veep”s name under him even if he doesn’t do anything awardworthy next season.
